  • Air usage data increases company profit - Case Study

    A large American container company required mass flow meters on their air compressor lines to help evaluate the efficiency of blow mold machines in their plant. The manufacturer melts PET chips and extrudes them through blow mold machines to produce plastic bottles for the beverage industry. Plant engineers need data on compressed air usage to help them reduce utility and production costs. Four ...

  • Choosing flow monitors for CEMS applications

    As a result of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments1, electric power plants must reduce their emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxides—the primary causes of acid rain. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in its proposed rules2, designates the 111 Phase I fossil-fueled plants ^roughly 268 boiler units) that must have continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) installed, ...

  • Controlling natural gas usage costs – Case Study

    A large American engine manufacturer required mass flow meters to measure natural gas usage in each of the eleven buildings on their campus. Natural gas is used to fire furnaces and other equipment. Because each facility is a separate profit center, fuel and utility costs are allocated by building. They must also provide an accurate usage report of natural gas to the Department of Natural ...

  • Closed vessel or open channel UV disinfection systems

    Ultra violet disinfection is now a standard feature in most waste water disinfection systems. UV has also been adopted by the drinking water community, as a barrier against the chlorine tolerant species such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The technology is widely favored due to its non- chemical nature, the fact that no subsequent de-chlorination process is required, and its ability to be ...

  • Case study - Discharge measurement at the river `Große Roeder` in Saxony - Germany

    Due to the seasonally strong weed growth and low flow during low water periods the measurement of water level and flow at the measurement site "Kleinraschuetz“ was rather distorted. It had to be corrected by putting in additional manpower for manual measurements. Therefore it was decided to modernize the station completely and to install a stationary discharge measuring system. The ...

  • Land Treatment

    Introduction Land Treatment is a full-scale bioremediation technology in which contaminated soils, sediments, or sludges are turned over (i.e., tilled) and allowed to interact with the soil and climate at the site. The waste, soil, climate, and biological activity interact dynamically as a system to degrade, transform, and immobilize waste constitutes. Wastes are periodically tilled to aerate the ...

  • Landfarming

    Introduction Landfarming is a full-scale bioremediation technology, which usually incorporates liners and other methods to control leaching of contaminants, which requires excavation and placement of contaminated soils, sediments, or sludges. Contaminated media is applied into lined beds and periodically turned over or tilled to aerate the waste. Soil conditions are often controlled to ...

  • How to Evolve Safety from Protection to Prevention to Prediction

    I’m in the market to buy a new car. My shopping experience thus far has led me to be absolutely amazed by how much has changed in the automobile landscape in just a few years. The vehicle I’m replacing is only 6 years old, but in terms of technology and capability it already feels like an antique. One observation that stands out is the amazing pace of change in car safety. ...

  • Seismic reflection, seismic crosshole and ground penetrating radar case study

    Geophysical Investigation of the Crosstown Expressway. Tampa, FL In April, 2004 Pier 97 which supported an elevated roadway in Tampa, FL was vertically displaced (collapsed) approximately 10 feet (ft). At the time of the collapse it was not known whether the collapse was associated with geological conditions at the site, specifically karst conditions, or whether is was associated with a ...

  • Increase biogas production, aeration basin efficiency with the right flow meter

    In our competitive economic climate, many plant operators have a mandate to tune their plant’s performance by efficiently using biogas in cogeneration processes and increasing aeration basin efficiency, both of which can save thousands of dollars in the critical secondary stages of wastewater treatment. In many cases, these facilities are retrofitting with new flow measurement ...
